Dear Member,

The 2019 Happy New Year hubbub may have died down a bit by mid-January, but not for the NCWCA board! We had our yearly planning retreat on January 13th and we’ve set organizational goals for the next 12 months. Of course we’re always looking for fresh perspectives, so if you have an idea that might interest the NCWCA membership, have a chat with any board member, any time of the year! Looking forward to spending another year in the company of all you wonderful women in the arts.
Take care,
Sawyer Rose

2018 Goal Results
With our new President Sawyer Rose,taking the lead, we developed NCWCA’s strategic plan, which has an overarching objective of creating more visibility and desirability of NCWCA within our community. To support this, we developed a branding strategy that added a new tagline and created a consistent look and feel to our communication across all platforms. For the first time, NCWCA is organizing a national curatorial exhibition, F213, that will include nearly 100 artists and writers. It is scheduled to open on April 13 this year. We kicked off a mentorship program, developed a speaker’s bureau, and published Exhibition Guidelines 
to help individuals interested in organizing their own exhibitions. We established a presence at Art Market with a table of information and slideshow of NCWCA activities. With our members interacting with visitors throught the ArtMarket week, we achieved many signups and applications for membership.

Added accomplishments beyond our goals included the launch of Bay Area Art Stars, a meetup between arts professionals and artists/art students; the completion of the video, "F*ck U! In the Most Loving Way," which will be entered into film festivals this year; and Ghost Ranch Artists’ Residency, which has sold out and is scheduled for September, 2019. 
There were several goals that were not met: NCWCA group studio site for ArtSpan Open Studio and Formation of Subgroups for remote area members. The Open Studio goal will be added to the 2019 goals and the Formation of Subgroups will be postponed until further notice. 
The accomplishment of so many ambitious goals that benefit our membership and the community-at-large is the result of an active board and membership. Members who have great ideas that support our Mission are encouraged to present proposals and budgets and show ownership in the work required to make their ideas a reality. 

In the February News we will share the 2019 Goals established by the Board.

Effective immediately, we have made the following changes to member announcements:

1. No forwarding of member announcements: We will no longer forward exhibition, workshop and other member announcements through ncwcachapter@gmail. We have listened to member concerns that too many emails were being forwarded to them. Google has also limited the daily number of forwarded mass emails and has rejected several emails over the last year.
2. Broader subject matter included in monthly News & Notes: We have expanded announcement categories to include exhibition, workshops, publications, open studios, conference speaking engagements, and artist residency acceptance announcements.
